Is it a question of 'Earth Summit, what Earth Summit?' or does anyone out there have some strong feelings on the subject. Do you think that a collection of 65,000 delegates from all types of organisations and from virtually every country on the planet can ever hope to agree on anything; other than create even more pollution? Not much point going down the route of questioning why this was held in Joburg; specially constructed conference centre not too far removed from the squalor of the shanty towns, but of course there is quite a security presence - to keep the poor out, or the delegates in?
